LIFE CHANGES SOOO FAST!

Tuesday, February 12, 2013



WELL ALOT IN MY LIFE HAS CHANGED! MY DAUGHTER AFTER LOSING 118 POUNDS HAS DECIDED TO LEAVE...LEAVING HER HUSBAND AND THREE CHILDREN! SHE HAS HAD ALOT OF CHANGES WITH THE WEIGHT LOSS AND HER HEAD JUST ISN'T ON STRAIGHT ANYMORE (OR FOR RIGHT NOW) SHE HAD CHANGED SO MUCH NOT JUST IN THE LOOK OF HER BODY BUT HER MIND AND THINKING...I LOVE HER TO DEATH AND I HOPE SHE FINDS WHAT SHE IS LOOKING FOR...BUT I LIVE WITH HER AND HER FAMILY AND WITH HER HARD WORKING HUSBAND I HAVE STEPPED IN AND TAKING CARE OF THE KIDS SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO GO THROUGH ANYMORE THEN THEY ALREADY HAVE GONE THROUGH! SO I AM A MOTHER AGAIN! DON'T GET ME WRONG I LOVE WHAT I AM DOING! THESE KIDS ARE MY LIFE AND VERY GOOD TO TAKE CARE OF BUT IT DOES CHANGE THE WAY MY LIFE WAS....TAKING THEM TO SCHOOL PICKING THEM UP TAKING THEM TO THERE OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES AND GETTING THEM READY FOR THEIR MEALS, BATHES, HOMEWORK AND ALL THAT COMES WITH RAISING KIDS A G A I N...
SO I AM TRYING REALLY HARD TO STAY EVOLVED WITH MY WEIGHT, FOOD AND EXERCISE! AND TRYING TO GET TO MY FEEDS AS MUCH AS I CAN....SO IF YOU DON'T SEE ME FOR AWHILE IT ISN'T THAT I AM GIVING UP IT'S JUST THAT MOTHERHOOD HAS KICKED IN AGAIN! I LOVE ALL OF MY SP FRIENDS AND WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON THIS ADVENTURE...
ONE HAPPY THING THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN MY LIFE IS THE OTHER GRANDMA IS TAKING THE KIDS FOR 6 WEEKS WHILE I GO TO EVERETT, WA. TO VISIT (WHICH HAS BEEN LONG COMING) MY SON AND HIS FAMILY...HE HAS TWO GIRLS ONE OF THEM IS TWO AND I HAVE ONLY SEEN HER TWICE WHEN SHE WAS JUST BORN....SO I AM REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS TRIP...I WILL BE GONE 3/16 - 4/27 AND NOT SURE IF I WILL BE ON THE COMPUTER MUCH!
DON'T GET ME WRONG "LIFE IS GREAT" I HAVE LOST OVER 30 LBS SINCE I STARTED WITH SP AND THAT IS A REALLY GOOD THING...MY SON AND HIS FAMILY EAT VERY HEALTH AND DO ALOT OF WALKING SO I FEEL THIS MIGHT BE A GOOD CHANGE FOR ME FOR AWHILE AND MAYBE HELP ME KICK START MY WEIGHT LOSS AGAIN.
I WANT TO THANK ALL OF MY SP FRIENDS FOR HEARING WHAT I HAVE TO SAY I THINK IT HELPS TO GET THINGS OFF YOUR CHEST ONCE IN AWHILE....LOVE YOU ALL...((((HUGS)))) TO ALL AND HAVE A GREAT VALENTINE'S DAY! LOVE YOU ALL, JUDY emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I feel so sorry for your grandchildren. My Mom left us 4 kids when we were teen agers. Our lives changed for the bad REAL fast. No one stepped up to the plate and helped my Dad. She came and went a few times which really scrambled our hearts. Praise God, your grandchildren have you and the other grand parents. Prayers headed your way and safe journey in March!

THIS EXERCISE THING WE DO IS GREAT!!!

Monday, June 25, 2012

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
THIS EXERCISE THING WE DO IS THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME! TODAY I FELL...YES THE THING I HAVE WORRIED THE MOST ABOUT WHEN I AM BY MYSELF HAPPENED!! BUT I CAN SAY PROUDLY THAT (IT TOOK ME ABOUT 3 MINUTES TO GET UP) I DID GET UP ON MY OWN! I WOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT BEFORE EXERCISE! AND I HAD NOTHING TO GRAB ON TO IT WAS JUST MY STRENGTH IN MY LEGS THAT GOT ME UP!!! I KNOW IT SOUND ALITTLE STUPID TO BRAG ON FALLING BUT I AM 64, VERY HEAVY AND NOT IN VERY GOOD SHAPE AND I AM SO EXCITED THAT I CAN DO THINGS LIKE GETTING UP ON MY OWN...THANKS FOR LISTENING TO THIS OLD LADY...

THIS IS A PRETTY SAD DAY FOR ME...MY DAD PASSED AWAY A YEAR AGO TODAY AND HE HAS BEEN IN MY MIND SO MUCH LATELY. MY DAUGHTER AND HER HUSBAND ARE HAVING PROBLEMS AND I AM LEAVING FOR 10 DAYS AND WON'T BE ABLE TO GET ON A COMPUTER WHILE I AM GONE! MY PROBLEM IS I HAVE BEEN DOING PRETTY GOOD WITH MY FEEDS, GOALS AND STREAKS AND I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE KNOWS IF I KEEP TRACK OF ALL MY INFO LIKE EXERCISE, FOOD, WATER ETC, CAN I COME BACK AND LOG IT IN MY TRACKERS? I AM DOING SO GOOD AND I AM TAKING A PORTABLE DVD PLAYER TO DO MY CHAIR EXERCISING. I WON'T BE LEAVING UNTIL TOMORROW MORNING SO IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEA IF I CAN DO THAT IT WILL MAKE ME FEEL ALOT BETTER...WISH ME LUCK AND PRAYER FOR ME PLEASE...I LOVE MY SP FRIENDS SO MUCH AND THEY MAKE IT SO MUCH EASIER TO GET THROUGH THE DAY....HUGS FOR YOU ALL...

P.S. TAKING MY KINDLE WITH "THE SPARK" ON IT TO KEEP MY MIND ON WHAT SP IS ALL ABOUT...

    My dad has been gone since 2004 and I still have times when he is on my mind. I even have dreams that he no longer had his legs amputated and is walking and back to normal. I find these dreams and thoughts comforting.

Enjoy your time away. I am not sure what you can back track, but all you can do is try when you get back.

    I am quite sure that you can turn back the dates and fill in the info you save up while away. I have done it on the food tracker so I don't see why not on the rest. Take care and try to stay positive. I communicate better with my Dad in my mind now that he is in the next world because he replys so nicely. He wasn't always so nice in this one.

    ANNIVERSARIES LIKE THIS ONE ARE ALWAYS HARD TO DEAL WITH. I HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR TIME AWAY. I THINK YOU CAN ENTER MOST THINGS LATER BUT KEEPING SPARK IN MIND AND USING YOUR DVDS AS YOU PLAN IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING. WHATEVER YOU ARE ABLE TO LOG OR NOT, YOU WILL KNOW YOU HAVE DONE IT.

    I know the anniversaries can be hard days but they do go by and we do get through them. It is my son's family that is on MY mind so I know how stressful that can be. I hope your time away is a break for you so that you can have some fun. If you are unable to log on, I know you lose that streak because it has happened to me, but you can go back and log some of the other things. Do the best you can while you are gone and then jump back in when you get back.

Good luck and God bless!

    Loved your blog! Guess you got the answer to your question. Am so sorry about the loss of your Dad...know how that is as I don't have either of my parents with me anymore. Really do miss them both. Looks like you are doing really well and know you will continue while you're "away". I just recently got a Kindle and absolutely love it!

    PRAAYING FOR YOU sADDLY, SOME STREAKS DO NOT LET YOU GO BACK AT LEAST THAT i CAN FIGURE OUT... BUT MANY WILL LET YOU ESP FOOD AND EXERCISE.
SUGGESTIONS FOR INTERNET...lOCAL PUBLIC LIBRARY?
MOTELS MIGHT ALLOW YOU TO USE THEIR LOBBY ONE FOR SHORT TIMES,
or just accept the idea of misssing and we will all be freshly awaiting you after your time away. I have made a note to pray through the 12th for you each morning and evening. God bless.

    You can definitely go back and put in the info. I have been meaning to look at that because I don't think it gives you credit toward streaks. The main thing is you will have a record of your successes. We will miss you very much. Stay inspired! You might can get online at a local library. When you come back go to Track Your Food. Once you have clicked on that page you will see the words ~Track Your Food in giant bold black letters. Directly under those words is a date line with arrows point back and forward. This is a neat feature if you want to plan your menus for the future. The same holds true for exercise. It will be on red tab! Good luck and prayers with you! emoticon
